I bought one of these for $9 and put it in my daughter's stocking at xmas. I shut the cell radio off so she uses it as the cheapest android "iPod Touch" clone. It will play Youtube videos, she can check her Google account with wifi, she uses it as a music player, and it will cast music to her bluetooth speaker (which cost twice as much as the phone). It's got a microSD slot, so if she ever drops it in water or steps on it or whatever, we can pull the card and buy a whole new phone for less than two or three months insurance for a better phone.
The camera is awful and pretty much unusable in most lighting conditions.
This phone is totally an exercise in being just good enough.
all you need to know about alcatel one touch pixi 2 worst phone ever
no gps system
poor poor camera
old android system
worst phone ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : (
Maghig, 16 Feb 2016Hi me again, plugged my phone into computer and checked for virus's, Trojans and Malware says ... moreTrust me p.c antivirus program does not to find Trojans ,
I tried with ' ' AVG ' internet security ' i did not find anything
so I speak from personal experience
when I installed a 'stubborn trojan killer'
he found a 3 Trojans and then deleted ,
and since then the phone works great as when was new.
the phone does not need to call itself ,
and it indicates a Trojan virus infection
that takes over command of the phone
and runs in the background so try 'stubborn trojan killer' it's free
This is just my opinion ,
means you can ask for an authorized service center for assistance .
for that block Outgoing Calls
1. settings , call settings , other settings , fixed dialing numbers , enable FDN ,
here will ask to put ' pin2 code' ( in sim card **** number)
enter the code ,and sim card numbers are blocked ,
and then to call these numbers , you must first have to enter the pin2 code .
for to disable blocking sim card numbers call.
also you have several apps on play store call blocker
but I never try this app
have a nice day

and it works in the background and is likely infected .
therefore necessary to check that this application.
but I advise you to install ' ' Stubborn Trojan Killer' '
probably because this application is infected ,
and if it does not kill the Trojan will continue to work ,
this is the only salvation .
If this helps, then returned to say.
why is my PIXIE 3 new prepaid phone use all my credit when it has been sitting in my bag and I haven't called anyone, please help, I have turned it back to factory settings, this is the second time in a week that all my credit has been used, on what I don't know, any mobile genius's out there that can help, much appreciated
rubbish phone, save your money and just burn it instead, it would be a less frustrating experience than trying to communicate with someone via this phone. Take about an hour to type a message out then the app will randomly shut itself down so you have to start over again lol.
I got a gift from a friend from New Zealand a fone which is on New Zealand network how to open that and get Fiji network.
Texting with this phone is impossible. The touch pad is horrible and I am constantly getting the wrong letter and no matter how you try to correct I end up doing the same - it is probably the size of the keyboard. Since I text alot this is an important feature - back we go
my sound is not working i cant put it on speaker and not even alarms and not even ringtones or music or videos
